I do believe that your info was from a reliable source/sources. My point before was I think the Skins organization is passing bogus info and could even be contacting the other teams just to throw everyone off. If checked and double checked it will show there is something to the rumors cause people will be people and spill the beans. I was not trying to call you out but it seems that way and I'm usually a fan who hates it when others do that. Again I was not calling you out, I was calling the information out. I think the Skins are putting a lot of disinformation out there to throw everyone off what they are intending to do.

Again no disrespect I have valued your information in the past and will enjoy your information in the future. Thank you for all you do for this site and the rest of us.
No need to apologize. I just didn't understand where you were coming from because what's out there is we ARE interested in Peyton, we ARE interested in Flynn, we DO want to trade up for Griffin. Yet, while that may be true, it's not the info I'm getting and providing. In fact it's quite the opposite. Now I may end up being totally wrong. But the info I'm providing is clearly not what's out there.

And again I do apologize and understand you are passing info you are learning. I'll let you say I told you so until your happy if any of it comes to pass. I would never have thought we would be interested in McNabb either and when the media picked up on it I wanted to cry because I expected a huge let down due to his diminishing skills and injuries. I figure if your right I'll cry again. I'm sure the team has explored every avenue to trade up and explored what it might take just to keep their options open. I just don't see them making the trade.

He said DC was intriguing to Peyton because he remembers what Shanahan was able to with Elway late in his career, and of course, Peyton wants to go out on top with one last Super Bowl victory. Kravitz said there was an equal chance for us, the Cardinals, the Seahawks, and the Dolphins to land Peyton.
I don't get how any of those teams make sense, and the Redskins least of all. Definitely agree if Manning continues to play it's with the sole purpose of winning more championships. San Fran, Baltimore or the Jets are the teams closest to winning a SB w/ better play from their QB i.e. P Manning. More importantly he could walk into any of those (three) situations and model the offensive scheme just how he wants it.

But again it makes no sense for Manning to consider the Redskins. He, for all practical purposes, is the offensive coordinator and QB of his team. Why play under arguably the most limited HC/OC duo in terms of versatility and vision? Manning's not going "learn" a losing, esoteric scheme and thereby give up on what he's been doing for over a decade...he's going to do what he does best: shred defenses, often in a no-huddle offense calling plays at the line. He's got more football intelligence than Mike and Kyle combined, what an awkward situation it would be to play for them!!!

Well, for the record, in my original post I do say that I think they'll fall short in their attempt. But that's my own personal opinion.

Anyhow, let's move on

Re: I See QB Rumors (2012 QB Thread: The Sixth Sense)

Now back to the QB topic: your a HC, you have a scheme in which you expect your QB to sit in the pocket 85% of the time and stand in the shotgun 10% of the time, and only run/scramble for yardage if flushed out of the pocket, and you have no intention of using the "Wild Cat", why would you want RGIII? This coaching staff is not going to take him if does not fit the system. Luck fits this system better then RGIII.

Bradford- again your a HC, why would you want a player who has not lived up to his #1 status, does not make good decisions all the time, on top of that your going to be expected to give up and risk more by trading your 1st round draft pick who has lived up to his expectations and just came off a half decent year...plus throw in draft picks? It should be the Rams who should be throwing draft picks our way in order to balance out their QB who has not shown he is a 1st round talent. No deal.

Peyton- will probably be finished or go elsewhere.

Flynn- will probably go to Miami to start and be with his Coach.

RGIII- is not our system of QB and will cost too much to move up.

Luck- will be interesting g to see if the Colts don't take him.

My best guess is the Skins will pick up a different FA QB, and try to trade back for more picks. I'm hedging my bets that any one of the other QBs gets drafted by the Skins and I'd guess Weeden only cause KS likes him, knows him now, and has worked well with him. I hope FA wise I'm wrong. I think Weeden will be fine and uh the team time to find that "young" QB everyone wants to have as our franchise QB.

I think Mike has one of these on his desks.

If not that, then RG3 and Kellen Moore.
With our roster structure being the way it is, we can't afford to do that. One of our QB's will be a FA signing.

All the Manning chatter may soon be irrelevant. John Clayton, Gil Brandt and Tony Dungy are all saying it's highly likely he soon retires.

Beginning to look like Rob Lowe isn't a complete idiot.

He showed lots of promise his rookie year, then fell off this year. A two year guy who played with an injury depleted team. His WR's had lots of drops, ran wrong routes, and had balls bounce off their hands and cause picks. When you had the OL and WR's that Bradford had, and Steven Jackson is hurt, you got to make plays and in his case, force things.

2. Our system QB requires a guy who is able to bootleg well. Yes Luck is the better QB, but RG3 is more athletic, and is just as accurate. The only major difference between the 2 is the spread offense griffin was in and the pro style offense luck was in. We have been linked to RG3 and he would fit our system.

3. How do you know Kyle Shanahan likes him? I'm sure publicly Kyle like all the South QB's he had.
1- I agree he didn't have an excellent supporting cast, but the problem is we kinda are in the same situation. The same reason I don't want Sanchez is the same reason I don't want Bradford, could they have hit their peak? are they damaged goods? will they be any better in this system or more of the same?

2- I'd almost rather have the kid on the North team who had to make some thing out of the bad snaps. He showed he could roll out and if had to run for the yardage. Taking RGIII to me would be like purchasing a race horse and binding one leg and using him for jumping instead of running races. If this team is not going to use RGIII as a race horse or for his skills then we are just hindering ourselves and should look into a different QB.

3- There are rumors that they met alone and worked on specific things like footwork, throwing motion, and god knows what else. Why wouldn't KS bring the other South QB's along especially since Foles needs footwork help? Otherwise I have no answer.

But if there is no other option then I'd say lets get Weeden for now and Foles if possible for future development.

Sure we could, I think it's quite probable that an early picked is used on presumed starter to be, Rex is re-signed for a couple of years as the vet backup/compete for starting, and a mid to late round pick is used on a qb to groom as a backup.

Bradford will be tough to acquire for sure. In fact, I think Luck would be easier to acquire.

But I still think we'll end up falling short of getting either.

No to Grossman. I don't even want him at FedEx field, let alone actually dressing for the game.
